San Diego County has joined what US President Donald Trump called on Wednesday a "revolution" against "sanctuary" laws in California that protect undocumented migrants. In a closed-door vote, the Republican-controlled board of supervisors governing San Diego County, which borders Mexico, backed the Trump administration's federal lawsuit challenging California legislation that restricts local police and businesses from cooperating with immigration authorities. Trump took to Twitter to praise the news, writing: "There is a Revolution going on in California.

Former US first lady Barbara Bush died Tuesday at the age of 92, triggering an outpouring of praise for the matriarch of a Republican family once at the apex of American politics. Barbara and George H.W. Bush were married for 73 years, and the widower "of course is heart-broken to lose his beloved Barbara," his chief of staff Jean Becker said in a statement. The ex-president, who is 93 and has been in ill health in recent years, is "determined to be there" for his family while in mourning, Becker added.

Opposition demonstrators blockaded government buildings in Armenia's capital Tuesday as parliament was set to confirm the pro-Moscow former president as the real power in the country. Parliament is expected to elect ex-president Serzh Sarkisian as prime minister under a new parliamentary system of government that will allow the 63-year-old to maintain his chokehold on the country. The ruling party pressed ahead with the vote despite opposition rallies that saw several dozen protesters hurt in clashes with police in the capital Yerevan on Monday.
The body of a seven-year-old girl who had been raped and strangled was found in India Tuesday, compounding outrage over a series of horrific sexual attacks on women or girls. Nationwide protests have been held in the past week over the gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Jammu and Kashmir state. In the latest case, the child's body was found on a building site early Tuesday, hours after she went missing from a wedding in the Etah district of Uttar Pradesh state.
Syrian anti-aircraft defenses shot down missiles fired at the Syrian air base of Shayrat in Homs province late on Monday and another base northeast of the capital, Damascus, Syria's state television and pro-Iranian Hezbollah media said. State television showed pictures of a missile that was shot in the air above the air base only days after a U.S., British and French attack on Syrian targets in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack on the city of Douma on the outskirts of Damascus. State television did not mention three missiles that were fired at Dumair military airport, northeast of Damascus, that pro-Iranian Hezbollah's media service reported were intercepted by Syrian air...

The Pentagon has provided a detailed breakdown of exactly how the United States and its allies, France and Britain, struck at Syrian regime targets on April 13. As expected, the allied powers used cruise missiles to strike at the regime, both to minimize the danger to aircrews and as a precaution in case Russian air defenses attempted to intercept the attack. "The United States, the United Kingdom and France, three of the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, conducted a proportional, precision, coordinated strike in response to the Syrian regime's continued use of chemical weapons," Joint Staff Director Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. told reporters at the Pentagon on...

By Gergely Szakacs BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Hungarians protested in Budapest on Saturday against what organizers said was an unfair election system that gave Prime Minister Viktor Orban a landslide victory at the polls after a "hate campaign" against immigrants. Orban won a third straight term in power in Sunday elections after his anti-immigration campaign message secured a strong majority for his ruling Fidesz party in parliament, giving him two-thirds of seats based on preliminary results. In a Facebook post before the rally, organizers called for a recount of ballots, free media, a new election law, as well as more efficient cooperation among opposition parties...
By Lesley Wroughton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Just over a year ago U.S. President Donald Trump ordered a missile strike against the Syrian government for a chemical weapons attack against its own people. Trump did the same on Friday, with allies France and Britain, in a response intended to deter Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from using chemical weapons again, but which was unlikely to change his grip on power. On Saturday, Trump declared: "Mission accomplished," a phrase indelibly associated with President George W. Bush, who used it in 2003 during the Iraq war and which dogged him for the rest of his presidency.
British Prime Minister Theresa May faced a backlash from the domestic opposition after launching military strikes Saturday on Syria without consulting parliament. As the Conservative leader explained her rationale for the airstrikes, opposition parties claimed the attacks were legally dubious, risked escalating conflict and should have been approved by lawmakers. The shadow of the 2003 invasion of Iraq still lingers in the corridors of Britain's parliament, when MPs backed then-prime minister Tony Blair in joining US military action.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - The militant Islamic Jihad group said four of its members were killed Saturday in a "work accident" in the southern Gaza Strip along the border with Israel.
Jeremy Corbyn has said the missile attack by Britain and the USA on Syria is "legally questionable" and will make it less likely the Assad regime will be held accountable for war crimes. The Labour leader criticised Theresa May for "taking instructions from Washington" and said the Prime Minister should have obtained Parliament's backing before launching the strikes. Speaking after the US, UK and France bombed multiple Syrian government targets in an early morning operation aimed at destroying alleged chemical weapons sites, Mr Corbyn said: "Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace. "This legally questionable action risks escalating further, as US defence secretary James...

Russia has boasted it is practising shooting down missiles as the country's parliamentary hardliners demanded a military response to any US air strike on Syria. The Russian defence ministry said that naval jets from its Pacific fleet had conducted exercises to "intercept and destroy a low-flying long-range cruise missile". Two former Russian officers turned politicians called on the Kremlin to use military force should Donald Trump approve an attack on the Syrian regime. Meanwhile Mr Trump, the US president, was under growing pressure from his own senators to follow through on tough rhetoric over the Syrian chemical attack.

An Egyptian court on Saturday suspended a ruling banning the use of ride-sharing apps Uber and Careem until an appeal is exhausted, a judicial source said. In March Cairo's administrative court banned the ride-sharing services following a lawsuit by a lawyer representing cab drivers.

Thirty-eight Russian individuals and entities including Oleg Deripaska, one of the most well-known oligarchs in Britain, have been hit by new sanctions from Donald Trump. Mr Deripaska, a 50-year-old energy tycoon, has been accused by America of acting "directly or indirectly" on behalf of the Russian government. The US Treasury said Mr Deripaska had been accused of money laundering, "threatening the lives of business rivals" and illegally wire-tapping a government official. The new sanctions were taken by America to punish Russia for its recent "malign behaviour" including its attempt to "subvert Western democracies" and support of the Syrian regime. Russian President Vladimir Putin...
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto lashed out at his US counterpart Donald Trump on Thursday amid growing tensions over migration and border security, saying "threatening or disrespectful attitudes" were unjustified. Speaking after Trump ordered National Guard troops to secure the US-Mexican border, Pena Nieto vowed Mexico would stand up for itself and suggested the American president was jeopardizing the two countries' relationship for domestic political gain. "If your recent statements are the result of frustration due to domestic policy issues, to your laws or to your Congress, it is to them that you should turn, not to Mexicans.
